(NECN) - Dennis Rodman has apologized for comments he made in North Korea about a detained American missionary, saying he had been drinking and was under pressure as he organized a game with former NBA players.

This comes a day after he sang "Happy Birthday" to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the start of the friendly game.

Rodman has been slammed for not using his influence with Kim to help free Kenneth Bae, the missionary in poor health who is being confined in North Korea for "anti-state" crimes.

Student reporter Dan McCarthy finds out what people think about this unique relationship in this Suffolk in the City segment.
